The Department of Science & Technology regional office, through the Negros Oriental Provincial Science & Technology Office, together with the Science & Technology Information Institute, turned-over one set each of the Science & Technology Academic & Research-Based Openly-Operated Kiosks (STARBOOKs) to Cambaloctot High School in San Jose, and to the Apo Island High School in the island-barangay in Dauin.

STARBOOKs is a stand-alone information source designed to reach those with limited or no access to S&T information resources through a user friendly-interface. The digital library now offers a new feature that showcases the natural wonders and conservation efforts of the three protected areas in Negros: the Apo Island Protected Lanscape & Seascape, the Balinsasayaw Twin Lakes Natural Park in San Jose, and the Tañon Strait Protected Seascape.

The recent feature installed is an application called ‘STARBOOKs Nature’ from the grant-in-aid program “Development & Deployment of STARBOOKs Nature to Promote Wildlife Preservation, Environmental Education, and Ecotourism in Protected Areas in Negros Oriental”.

STARBOOKs Nature seeks to contribute to overall to the government’s efforts by leveraging suitable ICT solutions.

A similar activity was conducted on Feb. 28 at the DepEd Negros Oriental Division where a team conducted a training for the newly-updated STARBOOKs to existing 15 benifeciary schools in the Province. (DOST Region 7 NegOr)
